How this Virtual Tour was made
I made the virtual tour of the stadium in three stages: In the first stage, I took aerial shots, aiming to capture the blue, yellow, and orange hues characteristic of the so-called “Golden Hour”. For the shot of the Tomateros’ training, I increased the shooting speed, set the ISO to 1600, and opened the aperture to f/5.6, which allowed me to enhance the lighting.
To prevent the lights illuminating the Tomateros Stadium from appearing “overexposed,” I shot in bracketing with three different exposures. In the third stage, at dawn, I took photographs of the Beis Shop Tomateros.
